Category: Books for Teachers, Chapter Books

By Richard Louv, 2005

Based on the premise that our children are the first generation to be raised without the meaningful contact with the nature world, the author directly links the lack of nature in the lives of today’s wired generation to some of the most disturbing childhood trends such as rises in obesity, attention deficit disorder and depression.
